Sales Hiring Is Challenging

First-Time sales candidates are only available seasonally, post-graduation from colleges and universities.  This makes hiring off-season, challenging, and open headcount almost impossible to find

To gain a competitive edge, your organization requires a different approach to identifying non-traditional sources of high-potential sales talent.

Transitioning Service Members

Every year, 250,000 veterans separate the Armed Services. 

More than ½ are under 25, only 3% have college degrees and 75% separate active duty with no job.

Although military members with specialized training find roles, those who do will have 5 jobs in their next 3 years.

The bridge from military life, military skills and military discipline to civilian life requires a transition.  A boot camp.  An indoctrination.

WHERE WE COME IN 

Transitioning Military Experience to World Class Sales Results

Our veterans have the ability to quickly learn new methodologies, execute in a controlled environment, overcome adversity, adapt, improvise and overcome obstacles with minimal supervision and resources while embedded within diverse teams.

 

Since sales is one of the few professions where to fail 90% of the time means success, this further de-risks the risk of attrition due to adversity.

 

Veterans lack the experience to translate their military experience into the civilian world and the civilian world that struggles do to leverage their strengths.
